Letter/Sound & Sight Word Practice


I can tell you've been practicing letter sounds and sight words with your kids at home!  You've been at the memorization game with your kiddo for a few months now, and you might be ready for a few extra resources to keep your kindergartner motivated and excited to learn.  Whether your student is working on memorizing letter sounds or sight words, linked below are unique ideas and games for your kindergartner.  Click the pictures for explanations and resources.

Helpful memorization hints:
  • start with a few letter sounds or sight words at a time, once your child has memorized one replace it with a new flashcard
